We were staying at a hotel just down the road from Doc Brown's and stopped in after reading reviews about the soup and mac and cheese (my husband just had dental work and couldn't have a burger yet). He had the tomato/basil soup and mac and cheese. I had a burger. Everything was very good. Sesame seed bun, crispy bacon,... More

Have been there for the first time after I saw the very good evaluation in tripadvisor: honestly, found nothing special on the burger (italian). The french fried were (as nearly everywhere in Costa Rica?) without salt.

I always have a great time eating at Doc Browns, the burgers are wonderful and you can't beat his prices! Awesome list of burgers to choose from and you can even create your own! The sides are also great and the mac and cheese is delicious. Make sure to get a brownie or 10 to take with you, they're amazing!... More

Huge selection of options ranging from grilled chicken to salmon to just a regular burger of course. He offers Heinz ketchup as well, which is... More

I LOVE Doc Browns. It's my favorite burger in Costa Rica. He has a great deal, you can get a burger, fries and a drink for under $5, the burgers are all cooked as your order, not left sitting around. You can also swap out fries for mac and cheese, salad, or soup. He rotates the soup and has delicious... More

Veggie patties, chicken burgers, beef burgers, salads, soups, mac n cheese, and more! Great list of burgers to choose from, or build your own! It's all delicious and reasonably priced. Try the brownies. Highly recommended!

Stopped here because we had some time to kill before our flight the next day. Gourmet burgers from a "house burger" menu or you can create your own masterpiece from their "build your own menu." By far the best burger we had on our two week journey around the country! Quick friendly service and just ask the owner, Tommy, to... More
